_______________________________________________________________________________________________

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: Causes skin and eye irritation. Dust is irritating to respiratory tract.
    See "Other Health Effects" Section. Can decompose at high temperatures forming toxic
    gases. Sealed containers may rupture from the pressure of water vapours released from
    crystals by intense heat.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS

 . Inhalation: Product may cause severe irritation of the nose, throat and respiratory tract.
    Repeated and/or prolonged exposures may cause productive cough, running nose,
    bronchopneumonia, pulmonary oedema (fluid build-up in lungs), and reduction of pulmonary
    function. Excessive contact with powder may cause drying of mucous membranes of nose and
    throat due to absorption of moisture and oils. See "Other Health Effects" Section.

 . Skin Contact: This product may cause irritation due to abrasive action. Avoid handling
    when the skin is moist, wet or abraided. Dry Calcium Chloride can produce considerable
    amounts of heat when dissolving into water. (3) In the presence of moisture
    (perspiration, humidity, tears), the dust dissolves to form a solution which may cause
    burns. Prolonged, confined (especially under the finger nails, under rings or watch bands)

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

    or repeated exposure may cause skin irritation and possibly lead to (chemical) burns.

 . Skin Absorption: A single, prolonged skin exposure is not likely to result in the
    absorption of toxic amounts of the material.

 . Eye Contact: This product may cause irritation, redness and possible damage due to
    abrasiveness. Contact can cause eye burns. May cause corneal damage and conjunctivitis.

 . Ingestion: Single dose oral toxicity is considered to be low, and it is unlikely that
    accidental ingestion could cause any toxic effects in the body. Large doses of this
    product causes severe burning and pain in the mouth, throat and abdomen. Vomiting,
    diarrhea and perforation of the esophagus and stomach lining may occur.

  Other Health Effects: Effects (irritancy) on the skin and eyes may be delayed, and damage
    may occur without the sensation or onset of pain. Strict adherence to first aid measures
    following any exposure is essential.

   May cause perforated nasal septum, gastrointestinal irritation or ulceration, cardiac
    arrhythmia. Calcium Chloride may sensitize heart muscle causing cardiac arrhythmia, in

  4. FIRST AID MEASURES
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

FIRST AID PROCEDURES

 . Inhalation: Move victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration ONLY if breathing has
    stopped. Give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if there is no breathing AND no pulse.
    Obtain medical attention IMMEDIATELY.

 . Skin Contact: Flush skin with running water and wash affected areas thoroughly with soap
    and water. Start flushing while removing contaminated clothing. Obtain medical attention
    IMMEDIATELY. If burn is present treat as a thermal burn, after decontamination.

 . Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with running water for a minimum of 20 minutes. Hold
    eyelids open during flushing. If irritation persists, repeat flushing. Obtain medical
    attention IMMEDIATELY.

 . Ingestion: Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If victim is
    alert and not convulsing, rinse mouth out and give 1/2 to 1 glass of water to dilute
    material. IMMEDIATELY contact local Poison Control Centre. Vomiting should only be
    induced under the direction of a physician or a poison control centre. If spontaneous
    vomiting occurs, have victim lean forward with head down to avoid breathing in of vomitus,
    rinse mouth and administer more water. IMMEDIATELY transport victim to an emergency
    facility.

  Note to Physicians: Due to the severely irritating or corrosive nature of the material,
    swallowing may lead to ulceration and inflammation of the upper alimentary tract with
    hemorrhage and fluid loss. Also, perforation of the esophagus or stomach may occur,
    leading to mediastinitis or peritonitis and the resultant complications. (3)

    Treatment for thermal, surface burns:

    1. Immerse the burned part immediately in ice water to relieve pain and to prevent swelling
       and blistering. Place cold packs, ice or wet cloths on the burned area if immersion is
       not possible.
    2. Remove anything that is constrictive, such as rings, bracelets or footwear, before
       swelling begins.
